Recipe: Orange Pumpkin Muffins


These muffins are really dense and moist! I made mine using all organic ingredients but you don’t have to do that if you don’t have them. I used butter, but you could use either vegetable oil or olive oil. Also, I used orange extract but you could grate some orange peel finely and add that instead. It has to have some sort of orange flavor in them though because it makes them taste super yummy.

1/2 cup of all purpose flour

1 cup of wheat flour

1 tsp. of baking powder

1 can of pumpkin (15 ounce)

1/3 cup of melted butter

2 large eggs

2 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice

3/4 cup of sugar

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. of aslt

1/2 tsp of orange extract

Preheat oven to 350. If using a dark non-stick muffin pan preheat oven to 325. Mix pumpkin, melted butter, eggs, pumpkin pie spice,sugar, baking soda, salt, and orange extract until smooth. Stir together the flours and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture until just combined. If you over mix your muffins will turn out tough. I use a whisk to do this and count to 7. Fill each cup about 3/4 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Should be done when toothpick comes out clean.
